Congratulations Johnny Depp!!




Who else could take BOTH Best Commedian and Best Villain?!?

Very well deserved, thanks for all you do Johnny, you are truly amazing! I don't get MTV with my basic cable package but thanks to the folks over at PEC and JDR it was just as if I were there (only better)! What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday evening ...

Doc Vicky, I snapped a couple of pics of Momma stalking the birds for her recovery (in my living room!) HA!

waits for birds...

still waiting...

Finally, she is rewarded with the arrival of the infamous Female Brown-Headed Cowbird! For those of you who don't know, this bird is a parasite (I prefer gypsy) who does not build a nest in which to lay her young. No, this one lays her eggs in other birds nests (often much smaller birds) and lets them do the watching, hatching, etc... Interesting though as they usually come to the feeder in pairs, you'd think they'd be able to do a little nest building together as well. For some reason, I have a strange affinity for these birds...

Well, I waited and waited for the pounce, and it came, just as soon as I came in here to empty my stick! Momma is starting to feel like her old self = )

Aww..poor mama kitty in her little collar!!! I hope she is doing better!!

They always looks so pathetic but cute when they have to wear those crazy things!! LOL Your such a good mama yourself!

Hiya girly pal--I'm up and lurking about.....

Does Sparrow have a home yet?

shakenbsis said...

Hi you sweetie girl! I miss you like crazy = ) Be vewy, vewy good to yourself pweshious...

Supposedly Sparrow does though I have never yet seen them. We will find out for sure on the 9th if they show up to get him. You were dead on about Lil Sparrow (pure sweetness) he is the only one who still cries for his momma once in awhile, then he nuzzles my neck hoping for milk... = ( most of the time though he is sweet and happy. (jsut wants his baba before his nap)

Tonight they both had a little Fillet-o-Fish from Mickey D's! I'm a bad momma...

dj said...

OHH I miss you tooo!! Awww you are sweet!! :)

I just KNEW Sparrow was a little sweetie!! I hope he gets a nice home! No...see you ARE a good mama bringing them home the "good stuff" :) Its fun to spoil them once in a while!!!

I love the lampshade-kitteh pics! I think only us cat people truly understand what mama kitty is thinking. "Cowbird yum--let me at em"

shakenbsis said...

thanks for the encouragement dj =)

Blaze! Yes, that was smokin' hot, and a great time. I knowcke doff shortly after you, a bit sleep deprived lately. Momma is doing better every day = ) She is resigned to the cone now and even playing a little (besides stalking!) She lets me groom her with a wash cloth, even her private areas, bless her sweetie heart. Makes me want to cry when I think about that kind of trust... even my own kitty would never let me do that.

Thanks for all your advice, it makes me much more comfortable to do what I need to do!

shakenbsis said...

hi msw = ) yummmm....

Blaznfire911 said...

Awwww I love kitties! Maybe you wanna keep her now??? LOL

It's hard to let them go.

Kathy said...

Hi Shakes! Those kitties are adorable, and you are so sweet to take care of them. The Lily Rose plea photos should help them find homes - those pics are so cute!!!
Hope you get some sleep.

wlkingbluepirate said...

You are feeding my kitty junk food. How dare you!

I'm just kidding.

Are we still on for next Tuesday? Yes? Yes. Yes. *nodding*

shakenbsis said...

I think we're on! = ) (i am for sure)
I'm running out to work right now, but will look at maps etc when I get in tonight. = )

Suz said...

I feel so bad for the little conehead mama. :( When does she get to take that contraption off?

And when are you going to admit you want to keep her?

:)

wlkingbluepirate said...

Yay for looking at maps! If we really are meeting in Crown Point, I'd say the easiest place to find would be the old Lake County Jail. Since that's where I spent my two days there. Plus it's in the downtown area where everything is.

What are your thoughts?

I'm gonna back to crashing on the couch again for a while.

Michelle said...

Oh, the dreaded Cone of Shame! Poor kitty. :)

shakenbsis said...

Heres' me, admitting, Suz! Time will tell... = )

Maybe you all can help me know when it's time to take off the cone. I hate to do it early, cuz getting it back on is harder each time. She seems ok with it now and has even learned to walk backwards, too cute!

Tessa, they had a party over at Grinder's tonight and I got caught up in it, will have to look at maps tomorrow... =)

Michelle - I love your new profile pic!

shakenbsis said...

Well, I gave it a shot this morning... She was so glad to have the cone off! Gave herself a nice bath, got to scratch her ears, FINALLY = )

It took about an hour and then she was right back at trying to get her sutures OUT!

Oh well, it was worth a try...

wlkingbluepirate said...

Awww. Poor kitty.

Life with a cone is rough.

wlkingbluepirate said...

How are the kittehs?

And what's the status of our adventure? Still on?

I'm getting excited. :D

shakenbsis said...

Still on Chick-a-dee! I just confirmed with Osh, she is coming to my place (Beloit) Monday night and we will head out Tues am, probably early if that is good for you. I think she has a 'get home by time' of 5 ish?

PS: Mr. Wiser MAY be joining us after all... not 100% yet, but here's hoping! = ) Go Evan!!!

wlkingbluepirate said...

Awesome!

That works out actually because I need to get back by 8ish.

So let's see...it's a 4 hour drive for me, and I don't want to get up TOO early. Like...4am would be kinda extreme. So what time are we talkin here?

shakenbsis said...

I'm gonna let Osh chime in on that since she's the one with the deadline!

wlkingbluepirate said...

Alrighty then.

Osh said...

Evan is coming with, so I have no deadline!

wlkingbluepirate said...

Yay!!!!

I still want to try to be back by 8ish though...which would mean leaving by 4ish. So yeah...let me know what works for y'all! :D

Osh said...

you have a date Tessa?????
now, is the Dillinger Museum in Crown Point?

Blaznfire911 said...

Hey Shak!

What time do most people get to the Kurth again? I am soooo nervous about walking in and making a fool of myself! LOL

Robbi sent me directions, but I am sure I will get lost.

Can you email me and let me know what time everyone is gonna be there and such?

Blaznfire911@aol.com

Thanks!

Vicky

Osh said...

Vicky, we will be there around 6ish... the place is so small...I was so nervous when I walked in the first time I made Evan go first...a 14 year old! lol

wlkingbluepirate said...

Well...I wouldn't call it a date. It's kinda like a book group, and yes, Cory goes. Speaking of...he definitely can't come because he has to work. So I guess I'll have to figure out some other time to come up there when I can bring him along.

As far as the Dillinger Museum...there is an exhibit in Hammond which is nearby, and of course there's the Lake County Courthouse which I believe we can do into because it's a bar and grill and was the holding area for the extras and the Lake County Jail right next door. So we can definitely do some Dillinger related stuff. :)

shakenbsis said...

OK Tessa, that means it's back on you! It seems your drve will be a bit longer than ours so you get to pick the take off time!

Woo hoo!!!!

too bad about Cory, guess we'll have to save the grillin' for another day! = )

wlkingbluepirate said...

Ok...well...how bout we aim for 11am. That would mean I have to leave at 7 which is my normal time for getting to work anyway.

How does that sound? Yes, no, maybe so?

shakenbsis said...

Sounds good to me Tessa! Chime in Osh!

Osh said...

sounds good to me! (although I have no idea what time this means we leave)

wlkingbluepirate said...

It means y'all would have to leave around 7ish as well. If that's too early, we can always shoot for noon.
